Someone suggested starting an ATX scooter tag game, so I figured I'd get the ball rolling. OK, OK, there's not an actual photo here YET but I'm going to copy some rules in and if someone wants to get a photo in before I do, that's great...I love a challenge!

The rules are essentially the same as the Orange County Tag and I borrowed some rules from that thread:

* The boundaries are within Travis County, TX.

* To start, someone posts a photo of their scooter with a landmark, sign, etc. Clues may be given along with the photo.

* Individually other participants ride to the same place and get a photo with THEIR scooter at the same/similar spot.

* The first person to "tag" the photo by posting their photo with their scooter gets to post the next photo for people to find.

*ADDED: if the tagger does not post a new photo within 48 hours, anyone may hijack the tag and start a new photo.

* If no one is able to identify the tag, the poster can give progressively easier clues until someone finally says "AHA!" though please don't post the location of the tag until after someone else has tagged it. The hunt is part of the fun.

Here we gooooo!!!

OK, I stayed up this morning after working all night, got my scoot and ran out to take a photo to put up. Now, I'm trying to get it downloaded into my computer and all of a sudden, my camera won't interface with the computer (it's always been fine before). I'm so frustrated! I think it may be the cable, but I really don't know. Doing all I can, and if that doesn't work, I'll probably go buy a new camera.

You did an awesome job with the Driskill photo! I totally know where the next one is but am not sure when I could get out there. Hopefully, some other Austinites will join in the game...

When I had my GTS, I got caught out at a Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse and had to ride home (at that time, I lived near the current photo in question) in a torrential downpour. It scared the crap out of me. I'm usually very careful about checking weather and forecasts so as not to get caught out. I've even taken leave from work to be able to get home before a storm. It is not only scary, but the rain actually hurts if you don't have on tons of clothes.

It probably should...but... I don't know how to move it and since we're a smaller group on here than the CA people, I started it where I thought more Austinites would see it. Was that wrong?

Austin is a fun place, with or without a scooter. It's growing like crazy, so you might not recognize it.

The mods can move it for you.

It is an activity, it belongs with its little thread friends.
If we can keep the categories fairly clear, then people won't wonder where things go or where to find threads. Visibility is an issue for many threads. The California threads go for weeks without activity sometimes.

The little exclamation point in the upper right corner is a moderator paging device. It will get them to come over but they won't bring you any more coffee.

Gonna take a shower (it's my day off!) and hopefully go get the photos. The next one is likely more challenging.

So, is anyone else from Austin going to participate (soon)? I'd hate for these tags to be solely between khaiku and myself. I have a hunch where this one is, but need to verify it.

I will participate but do not have a helmet or my M-license yet so it might be Sept before I am active.
